Step by step recipe
Dissolve the yeast in water and add to the flour.
Knead in the dough and allow it to rest for 2 hours.
Put the tomatoes in boiling water for 10-15 seconds. Take them out, peel off the skin, cut into pieces, put into a blender and chop until smooth.
Finely chop the onion and garlic and sauté in olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and stew over a medium heat until the liquid has evaporated.
Season with salt and pepper, add basil and leave the sauce to cool.
Roll out the pastry to 30 cm in diameter.
Spread the cooled tomato sauce onto the pizza base – spread over the entire surface.
Cut the mozzarella into rounds and spread evenly on the pizza. Top with pepperoni sausage. Sprinkle it with pepperoni. Place in the oven for 7 minutes at 200°C.
